STAR WARS: EPISODE IX Director J.J. Abrams Says The Script Is Complete; Confirms Late July Shoot Date

J.J. Abrams appeared on The Last Show with Stephen Colbert last night and revealed that the script for Star Wars: Episode IX is complete. The director also confirmed that the move will shoot this July...

When J.J. Abrams replaced Colin Trevorrow as the director of the still untitled Star Wars: Episode IX, we all knew he was going to be under a lot of pressure to map out the story and deliver a new draft of the script - and deliver he has.

Abrams was quizzed about the final instalment of the new Star Wars trilogy when he appeared as a guest on The Late Show, and while he obviously wasn't about to give any plot details away, he did reveal that the script is finished while also confirming that production is set to commence this July.


“We have a script, which is a big deal for me. It starts shooting end of July. Having a script in advance is something I haven’t always been lucky enough to have. I’m writing this with Chris Terrio, who is a genius, and I’m having a great time.”

It'll be interesting to see how Abrams and Terrio approach this after the bold decisions Rian Johnson made with The Last Jedi. Will we see some retconning of the more "controversial" story elements, perhaps?

We'll find out when Star Wars: Episode IX hits theatres next year.
